yup, sticky gas pedal usually = sticky throttlebody. They are connected via the throttle cable, which is pretty stiff (has to be). Pop your hood & play with the quarter-circle shaped cable attachment/guide on the throttlebody. If it sticks at all when you push down on it, then there ya go, time to clean the throttlebody.

(pic shows unhooking the throttle cable, just push down without messing with the cable to check for stickiness)
